Keogh (92) - Świebodzice, POLAND - MAR 21, 2015
Barwa ciemnego bursztynu, piana obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, ładny lancing. Aromat owocowy, karmelowy, do tego przyprawy, przejrzały banan. W smaku powtórka z aromatu, słodkie, średnie wysycenie i alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewający przełyk, wszystko ok, pije sie dobrze ale brakuje tu jakichś ciekawszych wrażeń ;)

kraddel (4260) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2015
Pours clear amber, good and steady white head . Smell is sweet , sugar , honey , ... Taste is very sweet with the same filthy taste I find in all leffes . Not only do I hate the brand for what it stands for , it all has the same typical filthy sweetness . Is it their kind of sweeteners ? Is it because they push this beer to be ready in way less time than natural ? Is it the fact it contains more additives than actual ingredients ? Slightly overcarbonated, but not as much as the average belgian beer . If only the taste was doable ... I can however agree to the creamy factor , described in the Ratebeer description

billiejoece (12) - BRAZIL - FEB 21, 2015
Típica cerveja do estilo belgian strong ale. Cor âmbar, turbidez moderada, creme de baixa formação e persistência. Aroma com notas adocicadas, caramelo, leve frutado. Sabor acompanhando o aroma, algo de especiarias. Achei bastante equilibrada no paladar, cremosa, não deixa retrogosto de álcool excessivo.

mircoas (164) - ITALY - FEB 18, 2015
33cl @ bottle. 2 euro. Belgian strong ale un po’ piatta, mi aspettavo indubbiamente meglio. Si sentono poco i sapori, forse da riprovare.

lello4ever (115) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Niente male questa Leffe da 8%, ha un colore rosso-marrone con abbondante schiuma beige, sia all’olfatto che al gusto risaltano caramello e malto con un retrogusto amaro appena accennato. L’alcool è abbastanza evidente, ottima belga.
